The SCM Studyguide: Theological Reflection fills a gap in the market by providing an accessible guide to the subject for all who embark on it for the first time.
Readers are offered a step by step introduction to understanding what theological reflection is and helps them to explore which of the methods introduced best suits them and their particular situation. It is practical in emphasis, providing students with a wide variety of worked examples and opportunities to carry out their own exercises.
Making connections with prayer, the Bible, psychology, theology and ethics, the book shows how theological reflection can transform decision-making and action in personal spirituality, in ministry, and in the institutions in which we work, stimulating new connections between faith and life.
